Trio of sax, piano, drums, doing freely improvised jazz. On sax, Mats Gustafsson flashes his usual vicious style -- he's done some punk-like work in the past -- while Sten Sandell keeps things in a jazzy vein on piano. It's not one big blur, though -- the three long tracks feature plenty of casual, introspective (but fast) periods. Nice stuff that's well worth the long playing times.|
1- Careful start soon blossoms into a growing aggression for just a couple minutes. Lots of concentration on restraint and texture, leaving enough space for dialogue... c.f. pause point at -8:00 when a crazy/sparse Gustafsson solo develops into a fierce duet w/piano. Last minutes are dire, fierce, passionate.
2- Quiet scratchings to start. Then quiet, sparse, long tones.
At +4:40, hammering piano solo ushers in a new phase including some exciting, dire Gustafsson wailing.
3- Vicious blowout from around -17:00 to -10:00. It's a processional feel before that -- fast playing but calm overall feel.
Around -10:00, things calm down. Then it's big and screaming near the finish.
